Marseille vs Amiens
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 19th May 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Vélodrome (Marseille).
After the disappointment of losing the Europa League final against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday Marseille will need to refocus on the league as they aim to try and finish in a Champions League position for next season.
In the mid-week Marseille had their chances but in reality they were simply outclassed by Diego Simeone’s side. The good news is that despite the disappointment the final took place in Lyon and so the club did not have far to travel before this important game.
For Marseille to have a chance of Champions League football not only will they have to win this game but they will have to hope that Lyon draw or lose against Nice. Despite two recent draws Marseille’s league form has been very solid and at home they have lost just two times all season.
Amiens are in 12th place and can come into this game very relaxed. Their form is good which includes two draws over PSG and Monaco recently. Away from home Amiens have lost just 1 game in their past five and are arguably having one of the best moments of their season.
Marseille vs Amiens: Head to Head
The teams have rarely played and the most recent result was earlier this season in the reverse fixture which Marseille won 2-0
Marseille vs Amiens: Prediction
Marseille can either pick themselves up and give their fans something special in the last league game or feel sorry for themselves and lose this. We see that Marseille will be like a wounded animal and we could see the better side of their play. A home win and a big score is very possible.
